Taking part in the Culture Project was a great way to learn about the business and gain an insight in to the important roles people play to make RPC a successful firm. Everyone was keen to chat and give you their personal take. The business has a shared mindset and drive to succeed in their individual roles, and as a team.
Approachable, collaborative and ambitious. Everyone has a genuine love for what they do and many enjoyed coming into work everyday thanks to the great teams they have around them. This left me with a fantastic impression of the collaborative nature of the firm.
